Wow, deadheads who care about voting but not being able to spell the candidate's name. Seems kind of silly to tell others to vote for someone based on a group of musician's opinions, don't you think? I love the music, but I think I'll make up my own mind when it comes to matters of this potential magnitude.

I would think that, at the very least, if you want to be taken seriously you would take enough time figure out how to spell the candidate's name correctly.

I always thought his first name was "Barback" and that was the only reason the band was offering support. Plus his family having old ties to the Capone family during prohibition.

Yeah, his name is funny because it's different. Ha ha huh.

Or maybe I'm just stupid or maybe did took much pot and can't keep his name straight from Ossama Hussein bin Soddom. Ha ha huh.

yeah, Ron Paul is alright, but some of of his ideas are too ahead of their time.

But I pick up a real sense of honesty from him, and savvy, that I just don't quite get from the others...

Huckabee may play bass and know Keith Richards (met him), but I'd argue with Huckabee on several of his platforms.

Romney I think, is the most dangerous man in the soup... thank goodness McCain is rolling over him, at least the last time I checked...

I have a feeling the Republicans may somehow win this one, though it may go to Hillary... the token consession from the petro-conglomo-monopos to the prols;

again the unquenchable American longing to maintain the status quo, the idealized past that will not die...
on that sentiment Hillary can cash in.
As the soup thickens to mush, it seems all the front-runners are more or less throw-backs to rosier days...

even Obama is a sort of ersatz JFK.


Better that than Pastor Murray in Reagan's clothing. (Romney is scaring me!)

Yeah. Hopefully those "conservatives" will finally eliminate the rest of the constitution in the name of protecting freedom.

And maybe they'll finally get around to rounding up all those naughty mind expanders. It gets in the way of total information control.

I don't know why hippies have a tendency when to go with the liberals -- it's the conservatives who are the fiscal conservatives. The liberals after all forced the right to enrich themselves at the public's expense and put the country into a $9 TRILLION debt.

God bless our brave billionaires who control the world financial system with bribes, usury, and coercion. They do it for us, to protect democracy.

We're the greatest. We're number 1. It's about time our president got around just this week to cutting health care for the poor and old -- if he didn't the defense stocks might have dipped a little.

We really need to borrow more money from other countries so we can build the missile defense shield (Star Wars-Death Star). I'm sure they make it work despite failure so far. Reports are that al Qaeda is thinking of taking all 900 from Iraq to build a system of box cutters that attacks America's vital supply of cocaine, speed, and heroin.

Trust me, I don't want this forum to turn into a boring political debate, and I'm disappointed to say the least at what we're supposed to choose from ( then again, who the f would want to inherit the mess Bush is leaving )- but you can't honestly suggest that most of those remaining are not intelligent. I don't know all of their histories but in the case of Obama, you can't be head of Harvard law and be stupid can you? Maybe you should answer this Blue Devil. You're a lawyer, you went to an IVY league, - you can't have that position and be dumb can you?

George W. went to Harvard and Yale, so take that for what it's worth. Lot of dumb asses in good schools and a lot of geniuses never got a GED.

But I certainly don't think Obama is unintelligent; in fact, I think he is extremely smart. I just don't see him as the "ONE" who will lead us to the promised land. I'm not opposed to the guy, and if he ends up on the ticket, with the rest of folks at play right now (assuming no brokered convention where someone not currently in the race popos up), he'll likely get my vote. But once again, I won't be enthused and certainly won't expect a hell of a lot as I'm more interested in those guys behind the curtain in the boardroom. Follow the money and cigar smoke...

c'mon, they would have given George W. an "A" or a "pass" if he had sat in class playing with crayons and a coloring book.

Altho, wasn't his grade average at Yale a C+ or something?

If he got A's, it was for selling the best blow. And always having a doob, dude.
And for the price of oil, that too.

I voted to-day... for Rocko Bam, why not.
He's no John F. Kennedy (to quote the Democrat running for VP who laid that line on Bush Sr.'s running mate, whatzisname) but I think he could lead to better things, maybe good people will come forward (if he doesn't get his head blown off).


When we had JFK, the world loved us. At least the French and Brits did, and definitely the Latins.

The world would be impressed if we had Obama in the White House.

More than if we get a woman. Most countries have already had women in charge - think of England... India, Israel, Phillipines, Argentina (Eva!)...
the US is far behind time-wise in filling the top slot with a lady.

Hey Hil, those cookies ready yet?

Hey BD,come on now! Dubya was a silver spoon frat boy with a C average. Obama was head or president or whatever it's called of Harvard law. Isn't that a big difference? He certainly didn't have a family name that got him where he was.

I was by no means making a campaign plea for him or stating my preferences. I was just compelled to answer Dire Wolf's jab. Sorry Wolf, just too cheap and easy. I get enough right wing radio rhetoric up here, I have to call foul sometimes.

Maybe I'm cynical but I think the days of one guy making a difference died with a few tragic bullets.

I wasn't trying to equate the 2 - you only have to listen to the 2 speak to hear the difference. I said Obama is very sharp. And yes, to be editor of harvard law review, you have to have more intellectual chops than most people. He's very, very smart. And Bill Clinton was a Rhodes Scholar (as was the guy who wrote Me and Bobby McGee), but I always thought Hilary was the smart one. Anyway, I listened to Obama's speech tonight and I just feel like it's more Madison Avenue packaging of platitudes ("yes we can"; the 15th variation on "change", etc). Now, don't get me wrong, if he can make people excited about his campaign and get them out there to the polls to vote for him, more power to him. I'm just deeply, deeply cynical about him actually being more than a stuffed shirt. If people want specifics, lets start with his energy policy (or lack thereof)....

Bill Clinton definitely used books for more than kindling and ballast.
Hilary is as smart or smarter.
But the media will tear the stuffing out of any stuffshirt who would be President...

It's the wrong job for a drip-dry intellect -
such as Adlai Stevenson, Estes Kefauver, George McGovern, Nelson Rockefeller, William F. Buckley, Dennis Kucinich, Howard Dean, Steve Forbes, Jerry Brown, Mario Cuomo...
sad but true, the people want a Ronnie Reagan, a man they can understand, who understands them.

No one guy (or gal) is going to solve the problems we're facing now...
or even put a believable spin on it.

We are cynical, heaven help us.

Where have you gone, Lloyd Bentsen, Dick Gebhardt, Ross Perot, Harold Stassen, Everett Dirkson, Bob Dole?

Come back!
Cause we're in some pretty deep shit now, and the good times are gettin' slim, jim...

so just smile, keep on truckin' and vote... for Mr. Nobody.

We don't get fooled again!
